Generous gestures

Residents express gratitude to others for seasonal sustenance.

Editor:

Prior to Christmas, I took my daughter, granddaughter and two friends to Pavlos Restaurant in White Rock for a delicious dinner.

When we were ready to leave, the waitress came to tell us our bill had already been paid by another gentleman dining at the restaurant.

I could not believe the man at the next table paid our bill, including the tip for our lovely waitress. We all thanked him but when I went over, he complimented me further by saying I didn’t look my age of 92.

What a wonderful Christmas spirit he showed and his generous gesture put us all in the Christmas spirit, too.

I wish to compliment the Pantry in South Surrey for their annual free turkey in support of the area’s food banks. The dinner was delicious, the service friendly. This was the fourth time the Pantry has supported the local community.

Many thanks to the staff of the Pantry for a great delight.

Bill Cameron, White Rock
